Fisherman's Fantasy (water)

Originally I made this song for the NGADM13. Since then I made a lot of improvements. I've replaced every single instrument with different more organic ones. Also most of the effects like the equalizer, compression and reverb are different, more advanced devices. I hope you like this one better. Most people said they liked the first half of the song best (the piano part), others liked the second part better (the rock part). Almost everyone said they didn't think the two parts fitted together. That's why I now upload the first part separately. I call it the "water" version. Later I will upload the second (rock) part. I will call that the "fire" version. I intend to make a "metal" (electro), "wood" (folk) and "earth" (symphonic) versions as well.

Edit 21 March 2021: Replaced all of the instruments with different samples. Re-mixed and mastered it.

Dang, man! Your music keeps getting better and better, this is beautiful! Nit picks - the string patch has too much vibrato, and the piano sounds very mechanical (no human player would hit the notes so hard so frequently). This is great, though. Great chords and melancholy feel.

Beautiful work man, you gave me nostalgia while I was listening to this.
I think it's because it has the same great melodies and song structure I miss from older games
You might want to check out that piano at 01:35 I think it might be a little too loud and a bit too harsh not sure if it's clipping but I hear a crackling noise.
Besides that this is a wonderful composition, Love it!

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. I was inspired a lot by music from old films and games. This kind of sound was popular for a long time. At least from the late 70s to the mid 00s. I thought it'd be timeless, but for some reason you don't hear it that often anymore. I don't think it will go entirely out of style though.

The crackling noise is from the keys. At first I too thought the plugin was clipping a lot but it has a lot of noises like that from the pedals and the keys. They did that for the sake of realism, so I reduced the volume of the noises but kept them in.
